Need to revaluate

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the fact that you are known to have Enlarged Prostate and now loosing weight in spite of normal diet.

This could be due to chronic back pressure changes in kidney causing increase of Creatinine in blood .and needs to be reevaluated .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
4) Renal function tests .
5) Uroflowmentry .

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.
